    A Solid Lifer that is actually solid is very heavy. In order to lighten the lifter for less valve train mass they often make the body of the lifter hollow, then they put a plate with the push rod pocket on top. The push rod socket rests on a shoulder in the lifter body and is held in place with a c-clip.

    I,am not sure I understand what your asking?But I will say this,it is a solid and should be treated as one.A C- clip holds it together,and if you shake it it will rattle but the center piece does not move.What this type lifter does is restrict the oil flow to the top of the motor at high RPMs.

    that's how I would have done it

    Sucsess!!!

    Well, it runs good and squirts. Has a couple minor issues that won't be a big issue. Appears I did not get the bowl sealed good, as it leaks a bit water around it, and the oil dip stick loose in the block, so blows a little oil out. I think if I get a new dip stick, that will be good though.
    Here's a short vid;

Once I fired it up for a few seconds, they are all pretty consistent. Defiantly hydraulics. Got the pump all rebuilt and getting ready o go try it out.
    Wish us luck.
    Good luck

    Hope to get beck on it today. Thanks for all the responses. It's been a lot of years since I messed with performance boats, so It's all coming back slowly. My mind just needs a bit of jogging, now & then.
